Clip art borders can be inserted and modified using the Format Picture menu in Microsoft Word or PowerPoint, then being set to display Behind Text with Text Wrapping in the Position menu. After the image is in place, margins can be set for the body, headers and footers.
Users are not limited to the clip art available within Microsoft Office. Microsoft Office Online provides additional images that can be inserted into documents. After the desired border is inserted and formatted and the margins are set, users should save the document twice with different names if the page layout is intended for repeated use. One can be used for the current document, and the blank, bordered document can be used in the future if needed.
