In addition to Tom's reply you can try the following:

1) Check "text flows around frame" _and_ "contour line".

2) Click "Edit shape"

3) In the new dialog, check edit contour line.

4) You can now resize the contour line either on a percent basis or 
manually. I recommend exploring this powerful tool. You can do a lot of 
fascinating things with it.
