Another day, a little more patience.

Well I suggest you tell us some useful things, such as what
"informative instructions" you read and what exactly you tried,
instead of waxing poetic about your grief. Have you for example
tried \fbox, \framebox or \boxedminipage? Can you show us exactly
what you have been doing instead of describing the symptoms and
expecting us to diagnose what you might have done wrong?
