I'm not sure how you need these cut but I attached one possibility. Look at the browser to see how it was done. As to the flat, pick a face a click on "Create Flat Pattern".

OK...1 bracket will have the middle third cut out and the other hinge will have the 2 outside cut off leaving just a third in the middle....Thank you

I think you'll need two different brackets. See attached.
