Making a simple switch

Alright, quickly documenting my first switch. I used two pieces of conductive cloth for this. The idea is simple, two pieces of conductive cloth are separated from each other by a paper insulator. When pressure is applied the conductive material gets connected, completing the circuit and glowing the LED.

Here are some pictures:
