You can customize the borders according to your blog style, but make sure that teaser feature is ON for your blog. Other wise the code will not work. To make teaser On Go to Dashboard>Thesis>Design Options> and Home Page Display Option. From here Features and Teaser select 8. Save Settings.

How to Add Border Around Posts in Thesis?

Add Code in Custom.css file

/* Style the First (or Only) Post */
.custom {
   background:#FFFFFF none repeat scroll 0 0;
   border:15px double #666666 !important;

/* Style Remaining Posts (in a Multi-Post Listing) */
.custom .post.post_box {
   background:#FFFFFF none repeat scroll 0 0;
   border:15px double #000000;

Save Settings and now visit your blog. Change background color, border color, margin, padding according to your blog and it is done.

If you want to apply the same feature on your blog Pages then remove .post from both codes and save the file. Hope you got it.
