Homemade wallpaper paste

Help! I'm in the middle of wallpapering my kitchen, and wasn't quick enough with one strip that was giving me lots of problems(over a spackled hole, which I did sand, but lots of bubbles and creases were emerging). I took it down, but would like to paste it back up. Of course, the prepasted glue is gone.
DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE PASTE? A friend told me of flour and water, but didn't know amounts to mix. I can't just use a new piece as I bought out the last 3 rolls, and need every bit of it. Any help would be appreciated.

Recipe for wallpaper paste

There are various recipes, but this one is pretty simple. 1 part flour, 2 parts water. Mix until there are no lumps. You need a consistency of yogurt. Add more flour if needed. Stir in 2-3 TBS salt (to prevent mold?).
