Step 1:
Take one of your Altoids tins and hot glue the breadboard to the top. If yours has adhesive backing then you won't have to.
Step 2:
Glue the bottoms of your two tins together, making sure that the hinges are on opposite sides of each other.
On to packing!

Start with your arduino board as it is the most important piece.
Slide it in it's baggie and put it in the tin with the breadboard on top.
I put the screwdriver on top of the board to help prevent rattling.
Now start on the bottom tin. Put the servo in first, wires second and extraneous items like LEDs, in last.
Once you have everything in, go invent something on the fly!
