Deal and crafts make me so happy

I have read a lot about mod podge lately and had never done it and so this was my first attempt.
I found these little ceramic tiles at DI for 25 cents each and mod podged scrapbook paper on and then used the mod podge to seal the top.
You probably can't tell, but they are now coasters!
Here is a big full sized tile $1- also from DI. Again just scrapbook paper and mod podge!
and my greatest couponing moment yet...

So do you get the paper or do you just go to Albertson's and get their's to get those deals?
So is modge podge like a paste that you buy? I've just never heard of it but your stuff turned out cute, especially for the cheap price.
