is there a way to run bitcoin-qt and point it to a local testnet?

I’m running a small testnet locally with this project:

http://github.com/freewil/bitcoin-testnet-box

but I’m having trouble pointing bitcoin-qt to the blockchain that I created locally myself, so I have some data like this:

bitcoin-cli -datadir=1  getinfo {         "version" : 90300,     "protocolversion" : 70002,     "walletversion" : 60000,     "balance" : 0.00000000,     "blocks" : 0,     "timeoffset" : 0,     "connections" : 1,     "proxy" : "",     "difficulty" : 0.00000000,     "testnet" : false,     "keypoololdest" : 1413617762,     "keypoolsize" : 101,     "paytxfee" : 0.00000000,     "relayfee" : 0.00001000,     "errors" : "" } bitcoin-cli -datadir=2  getinfo {     "version" : 90300,     "protocolversion" : 70002,     "walletversion" : 60000,     "balance" : 0.00000000,     "blocks" : 0,     "timeoffset" : 0,     "connections" : 1,     "proxy" : "",     "difficulty" : 0.00000000,     "testnet" : false,     "keypoololdest" : 1413617762,     "keypoolsize" : 101,     "paytxfee" : 0.00000000,     "relayfee" : 0.00001000,     "errors" : "" } 

and I want that to be the data, and the addresses that is picked up and incorporated by bitcoin-qt. I guess there should be some flags to facilitate this but everything I’ve tried so far always in unsuccessful- maybe someone on here knows or has some idea?
