You could copy the template and save it to the new machine.

The default template is Building Blocks.Dotx. It is in the profile:

...\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Document Building Blocks\9999\Building Blocks.DLL
Where 9999 is yourlanguage-specific folder

Note that if you need to keep the new file because you have some new items in it, you can copy individual items with the Building Blocks organiser. For this you would have to copy the old file to the new folder (changing the name, of course).
