Adding fancy borders to docs

I have 2010 on two machines and 2007 on two other machines now leaving the 2007 for the time being I have searched high and low for how to add some of those really nice fancy borders you can download into the program itself or is there a way to add the border after the document is finished or before it is typed up for that matter?

I am asking because I found this really nice parchment printing paper and want to put poetry on it.

Best thing to do is put the background pricture in "page heading" so it will be on all pages. Put picture "behind text".

Thanks fellas I think I have an idea - I have been inserting pics and I reckon if I download some of those nice Celtic and medieval borders I maybe get around it that way I just wasn't sure how to import them into Office.
