Distressing your own denim has never been so easy. Ready, set, go!

You’ll Need:
– Razor

Instructions:

1. SLICE: Find your knee placement by folding each leg to the zipper then mark with a pencil where the folds are. Place cardstock inside the jeans behind the knee. Press firmly with razor blade and cut horizonal lines, leave 1/4″ in between cuts. Continue making small cuts on front pocket, back pocket & belt loop

2. CUT: Cut the bottom back hem about 1/4″ from the bottom.
