I've done mine with sandpaper and a disposable razor.

 You can use a seam ripper to make the holes. Then you can just wash them and they will get worn. Or you can use a disposable razor to pick at it ( BE CAREFUL!)

when i was a kid i had this really cool camp councelor who took her jeans out in the country, hung them up on a clothes line and shot holes in them. i have no idea what kind of gun or bullets she used, but they looked fantastic!

there's a ton of other ways to distress jeans. you can use a cheese grated, a file, back over them with the car, let the dog drag them around, let the cat use them as a scratching post.

my last pair of distressed jeans ended up that way cause i wore them forever and they started to get soft. i would just sit there (it became a nervous habit when i was bored  Smiley ) and scratch at them with my fingernails and then tear at the rips i created. they were held together by just the seams. i loved them! til the crotch holes developed, then they were done.

Hi!

The best way Ive seen to age jeans is to pick at them (VERY carefully and slowly) with a razor and then wash them. If the tears get too out-of-hand, apply Fray-Block around the edges so your jeans dont completely fall apart.

Hope it helped!

Oh MY!! please don't try and cut them or tear them. It looks cheesy like you are trying to rip your jeans. but yeah like some one else said just fall down and rip them. It is fun because you get to make a fool out of yourself (which by the way I am good at) and you get holes in your pants in random places. But also you can get a blade and run it over where ever you want the hole a bunch of times and the demin will start to get thin. After a little wear they will rip ( this reminds my of I love the 8o's STRIKES BACk-man i love that show)
