Your W-2 should contain several copies (same information) with different letters that identify them.  One of them should say, "Copy B to be filed with employee's federal tax return".  Look for that copy of your W-2 that was issued to you by your employer.  Separate that copy and attach to your mailed Form 1040.

It should say the copy # in the bottom left corner.  I think you can use any copy.
