Miter Flange help

I just recently started using the Sheet Metal features in SolidWorks, and I can't exactly figure how to add miter flanges to the opening of this triangular enclosure (triangle.jpg).

 

When I use the feature, I sketch a line profile in the direction I want the flange to go as shown in the picture, but when I select another edge, the flange isn't generated for the other edges.

 

I want it to end up like how the picture is shown in  triangle2.jpg.  At the moment I'm simply using 4 edge flanges and  editting the geometry so each of the flanges curve in at a 45 degree  angle.
