New to Inventor and need help with Flat patterns

I am having difficulties creating a creating a sheet metal part in Autodesk Inventor to be able to create a flat pattern. I attached a PDF of the part I'm trying to create. The first page is the item I am trying to create. The next page are the 2 pieces I've been able to construct in Inventor but I can't seem to figure out a way to make it together. I also attached the Inventor model I was able to create.

 

How do I create this?

 

I am using Inventer 2013

Thats pretty close to what I need. Is there a way to close the corners though?

Probably. Try to experiment with it. But I personally don't see a problem with it. It is not a big deal to weld them up.
