For those of you who prefer a single background tile instead of a side border, I have included below the background tile (the tile has a border around it but when you right click and save as background tile the border will not save) and a larger graphic of the candle.




When setting up a side border background, insert table - using 75 percent and alignment right for the table.  Your writing and graphics inside the table will use center alignment.  This will keep your writing and graphics from overlapping the side border and center them in the empty space beside the border (no matter what your screen resolution).
