WORD: paste image into document with "ripped paper" effect border

I often take screenshots and paste images of excerpts of articles/documents. I basically take a screenshot, paste it into MSPaint, select the part I need, and paste it into the Word document. I want to show a border around the square/rectangular image that looks like a newspaper clipping or something that was cut out of a newspaper. Is there an easy/quick way to do this? I do this a lot.

I'm talking about something likes this:

Hi primuspaul,

In word clip art search for "torn paper." There is a piece of clip art that has 5 pieces of torn paper. Enlarge the clip art and crop it so that you have one piece. Right-click on the clip art and click "send behind." Size the clip art so that it will fit behind your image.

Not bad, but I was hoping for something more "automatic" and with fewer steps. This is a bit too clunky for me to do every time.

Create a Macro to do it, perfect for repetitive/clunky tasks!

Pinning "New" and "Open" Word document to start menu
Using Word 2007, I am unable to pin the "New" and "Open" Word Document to the Start Menu. I was able to do this in XP and Vista. I go to "All Programs" and can load Word but cannot find the options new/open. In Word I go to "Word Options" and it is not listed there either. Thanks.

Printer "out of paper" error
I have an HP Deskjet F4280, and as of yesterday, 7 is saying that the printer is out of paper, when it clearly isn't. The funny thing is, I installed the printer in XP Mode as well, and it prints fine from there. Strange issue. Has anybody ever encountered this?
