You will have to delete the bit on the bottom and create a new flange off the top.

Here's one way to do it. I took your model, deleted the top flange, and extended the front wraparound flange up. I then drew a sketch at the angle I wanted the top flap to be at eventually, and made a normal cutout across the entire wrapped front flange. I added the top flange and set its extent to the edge of the front flange, and then simply added a corner radius. Below are the steps in pictures, and attached is the edited model.
