Cut out a 36x24cm piece out of the jeans. Cut two corners as shown in the picture attached to this step (it's the flap) . Now fold over the edges (of the flap and the lower part) and sew around them. 3 and 4 of the first picture shows the inside and front side view after sewing the edges.
Now fold the square side up (to where the flip starts) and sew the both sides.

Carefully mark the buttonhole (according to the button size) on the flap and use a scissor to cut it. 
Select a buttonhole stitch from the stitches available on your machine and carefully sew around it. 
Now attach a button (I used a wooden button).
