Default Distressing Hobby Lobby Letters - help :)

I have a customer who is wanting to order one of the Hobby Lobby white painted letters (the kind alot of use to make bow holders). She wants it left white but the edges all distressed. Will this work? Should I just sand them down a bit with sandpaper? I guess the part that worries me is what's underneath that white paint?

I appreciate any help, TIA!

Not 100%, but from what I remember, I think it's a particle board pressed type of wood. (I tried spray painting one pink, the paint bubbled in a few spots, so I sanded it down to try to fix it...) HTH

I mod podge scrapbook paper to mine and sand the edges. The white will come off and leave a natural wood color...it'll be fine!

That sounds like a great idea

You can line it with white ribbon it will also soften the look of the letter

Thanks for all your help, guys. I made it last night and was pleased with how it turned out. I usually cover with scrapbook paper and sometimes make painted bow holders so this request threw me a bit. I didn't want it to look bad. So thanks for the help!

Would love to see a pic if you have one. I would love to do something like that for my girls.

I have done some furniture distressing and what I do is sand the areas then rub a varnish stain over the sanded area. It makes it stand out a little more!
