I think they are from the 1970-80's. Typical "Friendship Store" (large retail shops established in he major cities specially to cater foreign visitors) items.
The first picture from the screen rather looks like silk embroidery. If the embroidery is exceptionally good quality it might be more, but one can't tell it from picture. Let's say ＄40-60.
Inscription on the second picture,
中國麥稈畫 - Chinese Wheat Straw Picture
It's an unique Chinese handicraft item. The value of this kind of picture is largely reflected in its craftmanship. High quality straw picture must be smooth in texture.
This one really doesn't look excellent with the stains on the mounting, on the flea-market should bring ＄10.
