So I started working out about 2 weeks ago 4 days a week for 35-40 mins. I try to do a lot of crunches, squats, jumping jacks and jogging. I really want to get rid of my flappy belly any tips on toning that area?

Sounds like you are on the right track.  Keep up with what you are doing and be patient.  Look at focusing on your obliques and your transverse abdominal muscles(side stomach muscles) this will help draw the tissues upward, vs upper and lower abdominal exercises that may push out the tissue more.    Try side planks or side plank raises, Russian twist, oblique reaches, abdominal bicycle etc...

I would also recommend some upper and lower back exercises for posture.  Rows and lat pull downs to draw the shoulder back which will improve your posture and elongate you torso(a slumpped posture will cause the front abdominal/skin tissue to sticky out as well.)

Sit ups leg raises should tighten ur abdominal
But you still gonna have a bit of flabby skin remain
I know I have a bit 
But it isn't really noticeably though
but I'm afraid you can't get rid of it completely :(
