Drywall paper tape bubbles

After second coat of mud my paper tape is bubbling. Have cut out some of the bubbles. Now with 3rd and final coat my tape is again bubbling in new spots. Help

Welcome to the forums!

Are you getting enough mud under the tape? are you letting the mud dry throughly before applying another coat?

Unfortunately, there is no fix other than cutting out the bubble and redoing, sometimes you can cut a slit in the tape and reglue it with more j/c.
