3-D Bows on side of cake

So how would one go about making a 3-D fondant bow to stick onto the side of a cake? We can make them sitting on a cake, but not on the side. Is there a good demo out there for this? Thanks!

Are you asking about a bow that is going to go on the flat side just below the edge or so on the side of the cake? Like a shoelace bow (not a multi-looped bow)?

If so, you would make them the same way as you do when a bow would sit flat on top of the cake, just sized appropriately. I have a hard time gauging sizes so I usually make lots of them just in case.
