Animate folds in an Assembly

Like the title says, I am trying to animate the folds of a sheet metal part in an assembly. I'm modeling a box assembly and thought it would be cool to show the flat pattern, five of the sides fold up, the product is inserted, and the sixth side folds down closeing the box. Is this possible? Can I adjust the features, such as angles of the folds as part of an animation?

I just tried to perform a fold animation in the box part. Can I animate a fold feature in the part. It doesn't look like I can.
Thanks,

BK
