Wrap a flat thick surface to create a cylinder in SolidWorks 2016

I am working on a stent design for a biomedical application. I have created a 0.2 mm thick flat surface with my pattern.

The total width of the pattern is 2 mm * pi since I want a 2 mm diameter hollow tube with a thickness of 0.2 mm. I would like to wrap this surface so that it forms a cylindrical tube, with both edges merging perfectly together. I am aware of the Wrap feature in SolidWorks but I can't seem to find the right procedure to achieve what I want. After watching a tutorial on YouTube, I saw that in an older version of SolidWorks, the Wrap  feature called 2D Sketch and a Planar Face to create a Cylinder. How can I accomplish the same thing in the 2016 version. Cheers!
