Trouble flattening a simple shape

Hi all!
I'm having some trouble flattening a simple shape, in order to get it lasercut. The part is pictured below:

So as you can see it's almost the shape of a peg or a clip of some sort.

 

So i'm trying to flatten it out, but Solidworks is refusing to select any of the edges in order to flatten it. If i click on the edges, it just says 'Cannot use this kind of edge'. Can anyone offer help? I would've though this would be the simplest shape to flatten!

 

Cheers, Luke
