I normally use liquid startch for a size, but looking at the ingredients the first three are water, corn starch, and borax followed by perservitives, fragrance and something for ironing.
Is it possible to make my own size from just the first three ingredients?

I'm not entirely sure BUT I was reading an ingredients list for  laundry starch and all that was listed was cornstarch or cornflour here in the UK. So for a liquid starch you'd just combine the cornflour with water.... I don't know about Borax, isn't that a water softener?
