I just found out I have 3 rolls of freezer paper and 2 rolls of Heat and Bond. If I had them out where I could see them, I would have saved some money. Here's my solution for where to store rolls of crafting paper where I can see it, but still out of the way.
In the legs of my fabric cutting table...
The other legs has all my ribbon. Click HERE to see that post.
There are more tips and tricks, so pop in to see...
I had these 2 drawers left over from our kitchen remodel, so I just stored them in the leg area of my table to get them out of the way, knowing I would find something to do with them. Ahh...tension rod space!!
They fit perfectly. I just stacked them on top of each other.
This idea would work great for you if the legs of your table aren't wide enough to support the tension rods.
You can use old drawers, wooden boxes or even a small shelving unit that might fit between the legs.
Tension rods are about $1.50-$3.00, depending on the size you need.
Just slip the rod through the rolls and adjust the rod to fit.
Now for the next tip to label your rolls so you can tell what's what.
I searched around my sewing room to see what I had that would work with paper.
I found my absolute favorite binder clips and the little plastic cards that hold embroidery floss.
Click HERE for my other binder clip ideas.
Take one of the clips...
Squeeze one of the metal handles.
It slides right out of the slot.
Insert the handle into the ring of the embroidery card.
Squeeze the handle back into the binder clip.
Now you're ready to label anything that you can attach the clip to.
Just clips on to the edge of the roll of paper.
Tucked out of the way, but easy to get to. Just pull out the desired length of paper you need for crafting and cut. I have a pair of scissors hanging next to the rolls...( I don't have small children in my home)
I store freezer paper for English Paper Piecing, Heat and Bond to attach fabric to another fabric and I also have tracing paper for crafting.

You could also use this idea to store your rolls of paper.
Here's another idea for storing rolls of different papers. This is an old picture of my cutting table. I screwed curtain rod brackets under the lip of my table and then used an electrical conduit pipe to hold the rolls of freezer paper and Heat and Bond.
Electrical conduit pipe is super cheap and comes in long pieces that can be cut to size. A piece of pipe that is 1/2 inch wide by 10 feet long ( yes, 10 feet) is only $2.24...crazy cheap!!
This is perfect for gift wrapping paper too!!
I hope you can use a few of the tips I shared today to organize your space.
