What you'll need:

1. A pair of jeans

2. A box cutter or X-Acto knife.

3. Sand paper

4. Something hard such as cardboard or a book.

5. Tweezers

Step 1: Use a pen or sharpie marker to place where you want your holes to be.

I decided to just wing-it and see how it went. But I know if you're looking for instructions on how to rip your jeans, you're probably a planner.

Step 2: Rub the sandpaper on the area where you want your hole to be. Depending on the thickness of your jeans you may have to spend a while sanding.

Step 3: Using your box cutter or X-Acto knife cut a slit in the jeans. Note: Make sure to put something such as a book or piece of cardboard inside your jean before cutting or you may end up cutting through the back of the jean as well.

Step 4: Use tweezers to pull out the white threads. It's best to do them one by one because they are less likely to break this way.

Step 5: Depending on the size of the hole that you want continue to cut slits and pull the white threads until you are satisfied.

Step 6: Wear your jeans with pride and spend the $80 you saved on a night out with friends...friends who will compliment your jeans, of course.
