The solution is pretty simple. In Illustrator, I set the Export settings
such that the rectangular background is transparent.

In Word, I then insert Overlay1.png as Text Wrapping - Square (not Inline
w/ Text), making certain that the Layout > Position tab has the following
settings:

*Horiz*.: *Absolute position* <*value*> *to the right of* Left Margin

Vert: *Absolute position* <*value*> *below* Top Margin

I can then insert Overlay2.png with all of the same values.

Presto!
