Set the Background Color to white (D), then use Image > Canvas Size (maybe set to Ā»RelativeĀ«) to increase the Canvas vertically.

Christoph's suggest is great because you can define exact dimensions.

But if you want to take a faster, more freehand approach just use the Crop Tool and drag outside of the canvas.
