Sheet Metal Weldment Alignment Tabs

I'm trying to make a multibody sheet metal part that has alignment tabs to aid the fitter/welder during setup. I came across a similar model (shown below) which was setup using the same idea, but I'm not sure how to go about doing it myself in the attached part file.

As you'll see in the attached model, I managed to get one of the tabs in the bend radius, but it disapears when I unsuppress the flat pattern. I'm not even sure I'm going about this the correct way. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
