# Border around included pdf

I have some appendices in my report and I want to add a border around the document to make it more clear it's not a part of the document.

I am using the pdfpages package to include the pdf files.

Currently I am using this to include the pdf:

\includepdf[pages=-,frame,scale=.95,pagecommand={}]{bijlagen/pva.pdf}


I'm using the frame option which draws a border around, it gives me this result:

As you can see the page number and the header of the "base document" is showing up inside the frame, and I do want them to show up. But what I actually want is the border to be smaller, somewhat like this:

I've tried doing it with

\begin{framed}
\includepdf[pages=-,frame,scale=.95,pagecommand={}]{bijlagen/pva.pdf}
\end{framed}


But that doesn't work because the pdf is multiple pages and it tries to put everything one the same place. (it might work with only one page, but I didn't test it)

With the comment of samcarter I manage to solve it somewhat:

With these options:

\includepdf[
clip=0mm 0mm 0mm 0mm,
trim=20mm 40mm 20mm 15mm,
pages=-,
frame,
scale=.65,
pagecommand={}
]{
bijlagen/pva.pdf
}


It is a bit small, so I have to fine tune these values some more.
