How do I create a zigzag/jagged edge in Photoshop?

In Photoshop CS6, I'm curious how I would go about creating a jagged-edged border/zig-zag, similar to this: http://i.imgur.com/XR8Mf.png

A lot of the tutorials I've seen have been about solid color extensions, but I'm looking for taking one side of an image, say just the bottom, and adding a zigzag edge to it.

Thanks for any help;

If I needed to duplicate that effect, I'd create the shape in Illustrator and export the file as a psd.

The steps in between 2 and 3 involve selecting the extra points, deleting and rejoining them.
