So you should have your tag, and then the mask as 2 separate layers
Duplicate your mask layer so you have 3 copies of it
On the first copy- Filters>Noise>RGB Noise
I unchecked both boxes and had all 3 sliders on 0.20
Now hit CTRL+F on the other 2 mask layers to apply noise to those
Create 2 more layers of your tag and merge each tag layer to a mask layer
Autocrop image and Remove Alpha Channel on each layer
Filters>Animation>Playback
if happy with how the animation looks, save your tag as a GIF file!
