HALLOWEEN CACHET

Click the button below for an envelope template that can be used with the current Jack-O'-Lantern stamps. The two pumpkin faces allows this to also be used as an intergenerational activity with a child creating one face and an adult or another sibling or person creating the second face. The envelope needs to be cut out and pasted/glued to form the actual envelope. The child's mailing address should be written on the lines provided.

For a limited time, the AFDCS will turn your completed envelope into a first day cover. By October 31, 2016, send your completed envelope to MaryAnn Bowman, P.O. Box 1451, Waukesha, WI 53187. We'll add the stamp and get it postmarked with the first day of issue cancelation. The is a great way to introduce the joy of first day covers to kids!
