Great! I've been thinking really hard about how to add a switch to an LED-button battery combination and never really got anywhere. This is perfect!

I have taught myself basic electronics but resistor values kind of confuse me

It would not hurt to look into adding a resistor that matches the LED, this will improve the lifetime of the battery (and the LED) without adding much complexity. you do not even need to solder it, gluing it on the leg of the LED (making sure there is metal-to-metal contact) will be just fine in this case. Now with the "negative" out of the way I want to say that its a great detailed instructable and your pictures are really good.
