Step 1:

Pretty dense foam from a kayak pad. Cut foam in rectangle shape of the Altoids Tin. 

Step 2:

My foam had a tape back, if yours doesn't, glue or epoxy to the bottom of Altoids Tin.

Step 3:

Use a fuse to punch holes in the foam. I used one and threw it away, the chances that it was damaged are slim, but I don't want to find out.

Step 4:

That's it, put it in the glove box. I would like to add a fuse puller and a mini LED light. 

Step 5:

Updated with a fuse puller and mini LED light. 
Mini LED: $5
Fuse Puller: $1.50
Fuses: $5
Foam: Re-use
Altoids Tin: $2.00

Total: $13.50 for 2
