Taping Joints: Bubble

I recently had to tape a few joints. Initially after I put on my base coat of spackle, then applied the tape, then went over it with spackle, it looked good. Now looking at it, there are a few areas where the tape seems to be slightly bubbled up. Should I be concerned with this, or will my second and third coats of spackle take care of the this? Thanks.

If the tape is bubbled, there was either not enough mud behind the tape, or it didn't get wiped down tight. At any rate, you can't cover up tape with bubbles in it. If the areas are small, you can just cut them out with a knife and mud over them. If it's a lot of bubbles in a large area, your best bet is to rip the tape off and start over.
