Create style with border around multiple paragraphs

Hi,
using LibreOffice 4.1.4.2 Writer on Windows XP sp3 I would like to have a border around multiple lines (lines are separated by ENTER key - so there are actually paragraphs).

1. Because I have a large document I have decided to create a new page style by: Menu: Format | Styles and Formatting.
2. Click on Page style tab on top new opened dialog.
3. Right click on top of "Default Style" and selected New.
4. Organizer tab | Style | Name: My_border_style
5. Borders tab | Line arrangement | Default | Set All Four Borders
6. OK button to close a dilaog.
7. My_border_style appears in list of paragraph styles.
8. In document I have typed in the following text: my text
9. Pressed Enter to get into new line.
10. From toolbar I cliked on icon "Bullets On" to create a new bulllet and typed text: my first bullet.
11. I have selected both lines. 12. From "Styles and Formatting dialog" still displayed, double clicked on My_border_style. And the result is two borders around each of line, see print screen: http://i.imgur.com/SHjpB1p.png But this is not what I would like to have - I would like to have a border outside both text lines. How to do this?
Thanks
